At the onset of the pandemic, SMPTE brought together industry groups and individual contributors to find solutions that would allow efficient workflows in the virtual production ecosystem. Over the past two years SMPTE RIS OSVP Education workgroups have produced the Interactive Wallchart, the main deliverable that describes the workflow ecosystem throughout all phases of virtual production, and the InterOp workgroup has produced the Camera and Lens Metadata document to help describe interoperability between different components on set; they are now entering exploratory phase for the camera tracking, producing the new workgroup: Color Management. Add to that the furious pace of work on the OSA (Open Service Alliance) side of RIS, solving real-world media microservice interoperability challenges, and it’s been a busy few years!

What’s coming next and why must I know about it?
